Kolkata: Moving from the slogan of 'Ma Mati Manush (Mother, land and people)' to 'roti kapda aur makaan (food, dress and shelter), the Trinamool Congress on  Saturday released its manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, promising electoral and judicial reforms, transparency and a corruption-free India.

The document said if voted to power, the Trinamool would pursue a hands-off policy on land acquisition, come out with a national loan waiver scheme for small and poor farmers and ensure free medical services for senior citizens.

Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee, who officially unveiled the document, attacked the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) saying they have 'lost their credibility'.

'Roti, kapda and makaan is our focus. Our manifesto is for a dynamic India. Our manifesto is people-friendly, industry-friendly and agriculture-friendly,' Banerjee told a large gathering of mediapersons media at her residence in south Kolkata's Kalighat.

The manifesto was in two parts - one dwelling on national issues and another with those pertaining to West Bengal.

Calling for state funding of elections as a part of the fight against graft, Banerjee iterated the system has become corrupt.

'We will bring in electoral reforms. We will set up a mechanism to make the election process transparent. We will make it state-funded through the Election Commission'.

She also alleged that parties claiming to be poor have also amassed a lot of wealth while new outfits which came into existence some months back were also flush with money.
